Is it customary to pay a gratuity for medical spa services, such as Botox® or laser hair removal?”
While it is customary to pay a 15-20% gratuity for spa services performed by massage therapists, aestheticians and nail technicians, it is not customary to give gratuities for medical spa services. Injectibles (like Botox®), laser treatments and other medical services are performed by medical professionals – often doctors – and there are no expected gratuities.
